Paolo Tonella has given foundational contributions to Software Engineering, in the area of
code analysis and testing. His ICSE
Most Influential Paper (MIP) award winning paper,
Analysis and Testing of Web Applications, initiated a
new stream of research devoted to the development of testing techniques for web applications.
His comprehensive book
Reverse Engineering of Object-Oriented Code laid
the foundations for the reverse engineering of object-oriented systems.
His ISSTA 2004 paper
Evolutionary Testing of Classes
is recognized as a milestone for the automated generation of object oriented test cases.
One of the most widely used Java test case generators, EvoSuite,
can be traced back to this seminal ISSTA paper and to the associated tool, eToc.
